CE LA VI, is a living, is a pursuit of pleasure. A flagship opening in Hong Kong on top floor of the restyled California Tower, it has a spectacular view of the iconic skyline over our legendary Lan Kwai Fong.
Being invited to a pastry workshop, it is hosted by CE LA VI executive pastry Chef Jason Licker, who has worked in some of the most globally familiar top kitchens including JW Marriott Hong Kong and three Michelin-starred Jean Georges in New York.
As they aim to bring diners with ultimate and memorable dining experiences, some last bits after dinner have been made visually and fingerlickingly perfect.
Chef Licker’s masterpieces are of stunning presentation and unpredictable creations, that includes a Hong Kong Cappuccino. A twist on ordinary cappuccino drink, made with layers of passionfruit cream, milk tea gelato, Whiskey foam and finished off with milk powder crumble.
A gorgeously presented white chocolate is in fact infused with Junmai sake, fruity berries with yuzu syrup and crispy sensation of salted toffee.
The piece of toasted almond cake is also impressively served aside refreshing guava sorbet, some calamansi curd, paper thin coconut and orange crisps, sprinkles of dehydrated yogurt, which has been excellently glazed with citrus juice.
Indeed, it is an overwhelming experience to explore our senses of taste. Thanks for having me today!
